I have had a good time experimenting with the Attiny 85, using Arduino as ISP. I'am impressed what you an do with such a small device.
Now I would like to use a programmer, so I bought a pololu USB AVR Programmer, and then my trouble began.
Im using Coing Badly's core:
I ammended this to programmers.txt :
pololu.name=pololu USB AVR Programmer pololu.communication=serial Pololu.protocol=avrispv2
and the bords.txt:
The following DO work (pick one)...
And then what I think is the prolem, in avrdude.conf I made this entry:
programmer id = "Pololu"; desc = "pololu USB AVR Programmer"; type = avrispv2;
When uploading the blink sketch I get this message from the Arduiono IDE
Binary sketch size: 748 bytes (of a 8192 byte maximum) error at D:\Ernst\arduino\arduino-0021\hardware/tools/avr/etc/avrdude.conf:387 unrecognized character: "a"
line 387 is: type = avrispv2;
I have tried other names f.:ex: Pololu but no luck So obviosly I can't just make a new type, so what to do
